BETA PHOTO: One of the best in the park. It goes up and left ...


This is the very thin line of crimps up the overhanging wall to the left of Halcyon. Start with a sidepull and a very small right handhold and make an exceedingly hard move to a decent edge. Continue with interesting, difficult moves on decent edges to the lip, then top out and follow Halcyon up the slab to the top of the boulder. The crux is the first move, but the rest is no gimme.


To the left of Halcyon - shares the same finish.

I've seen three different ways to start this, all use the decent left hand. But there is a very small right hand directly below the deadpoint hold, there's a better hold with a good thumb catch which is 5 feet right of the left start hold (most people use a heelhook with this start), and then someone was using the heelhook hold as a hand. I haven't tried the low heelhook hold as a start but the other two feel about the same difficulty. Are all of these valid?
